Here where I live the summer this year has been pitiful so far. Pitiful! It's cold, rainy and generally not very summer-like and because I am starved of sunshine, wearing flip-flops and eating outdoors I have decided to fake it this year. There's a few things that help me with this endeavour and one of them is the absolutely incredible new range from the Body Shop - meet Piñita Colada.
One of the nicest and most summery things to do, whether you are on holidays or just chilling in your back garden, is having a piña colada (recipe for the actual cocktail on the blog next week). The mix of pineapple and coconut just screams summer sun and the new Piñita Colada range from Body Shop does exactly that. It smells good enough to eat / drink and I am very tempted, but a previous experience with their raspberry body scrub taught me that it definitely does not taste as good as it smells. The range consists of the regular favourite goodies: a shower gel, body butter, scrub and body sorbet.
The scent is super refreshing and makes me feel amazing. After my morning shower & moisturising routine I get the hint of piña colada for the rest of the day and lack of a real summer is that little bit easier to bear.
I think I might stock up on some shower gel and crack open a bottle in winter to deal with those January blues!
Have you tried the range yet? If you haven't get yourself to a shop for a sniff!
